The word “imitation” means to imitate or copy something else. Not surprisingly, an emulator does just that in terms of computers.

Specifically, an emulator refers to a computer or program that is trying to imitate another version. It has been found in software programs on Mac computers that can run Windows when they are otherwise incompatible.

As with any “copy”, the emulators do fine and the original versions work better.

So why would you use an emulator instead of the real thing? There are several reasons why emulators are in high demand in the technology industry.

1. The genuineness of the emulator

Despite the recent popularity of the term, emulators have been around since 1963, when microcode was used to run older programs on newer devices.

It’s a way of combining software and hardware specifically designed to mimic older programs. The engineers needed something to call the process, so they used an “emulator.”

Decades later, the term gained momentum as these software programs became popular. However, most of the time we use emulators for video games so that players can enjoy their old favorite games on their new system.

But as users switch to iOS and Android systems, the demand for emulators has increased dramatically.

2. Act from the emulator

How the emulator works depends on the technology behind the device. Each is designed to recreate the original software or hardware and create users for new devices. However, some emulators go beyond basic specifications and add new or improved features.

Since emulation is not easy, an emulator can have dozens (or more) resources. Emulator programs generally take some time to develop, especially when the programmer does it for free without paying any money.

Even with these technical springs, the original is usually better than the copy. But it also depends on the device the emulator is running on. For example, some emulator tablets are more suitable than others.

3. The Popularity of Emulators Today

So why have emulators been making the headlines in tech industries lately? The answer is partly due to the war between Android and iOS and Windows and Mac.

If there’s a program you really want to use, but it’s only available on the competition’s devices, you’re stuck going without—unless you have an emulator. Then, you can use whatever apps you want, regardless of their original platform design.

Emulators are also essential for passing down generations of digital programs. Think about the Mario Bros. games as a prime example. Without emulators to preserve and share this marvel video game, Mario and Luigi would have been lost to millions of gamers every year.

When a program is stored on a platform that is now obsolete, such as Nintendo and Atari consoles, the format can be downloaded as read-only memory (ROM). From there, the ROM is opened with an emulator, and the original game or software is played on the new device.

4. Emulators Are Still Developing

As it is with technology, emulators aren’t done evolving yet. Devices are constantly changing with innovative ideas and hardware solutions, and emulators have to keep up with the changes.

Take an emulator that needs to replicate the original Donkey Kong designed for arcade games. It wasn’t that complicated when it was first released, and now, gamers can play it on the Nintendo Switch. The software was easy to download into ROM, and Nintendo bought the rights for its Switch device.

Now imagine the same type of mimicking with a game like Fortnight. The world developed an entire culture around this realistic game. And trying to run it on an emulator would require serious graphics power.

The more complex the system, the harder it is to emulate. That’s why newer emulated programs will lag behind their original counterparts. Still, if you’re determined to run software that isn’t designed for your system on your device, an emulator makes this possible.

5. Cautions With Emulators

Planning on using an emulator? Keep these risks in mind as you run your programs.

First, it’s not uncommon to find viruses disguised as emulators available for download.

We should all be in the habit of never downloading or installing anything from a site that we haven’t researched. But it’s exciting to find your favorite software in emulator format. Slow down, and check out the authenticity before clicking “download.”

Second, remember that any program that isn’t on an emulator format from its manufacturer puts you in a legal bind. The emulator itself is fine, but if you download a program without paying for it, you could be violating the copyright. (Remember Napster?)


Emulators mimic the original version of software and hardware, making it possible for millions of other users to enjoy the program.

With so many competing platforms, it’s no wonder emulators are in demand. They’re beneficial as long as you’re aware of the drawbacks and legalities involved in using yours.
